SUP Review: Garmin Forerunner 920XT

As I pointed out in the review of the Polar V800, M400, Suunto Ambit3 Sport and Peak and the Garmin 620 Forerunner which you can read hereherehere and here,  I am always looking for something that will improve my paddling experience. I was lucky enough to receive a Garmin Forerunner 920XT from Garmin Australia to have a play around with. Once I finished with the watch I then sent it back, so don’t think I am getting a free watch just for doing a review, enjoy.

SUP Review: Polar M400 GPS HRM

As I pointed out in the review of the Polar V800 I am always looking for something that will improve my paddling experience. This time around we have the baby brother/sister of the V800, the Polar M400. Again the fantastic girls and guys at Pursuit Performance Australia, thanks Sally, sent me a unit for the purposes of this review for a month. I then sent it back on completion, so don’t think I am getting a free watch just for doing a review. Because this watch is very similar to the V800 there will be a bit "like the V800" and "similar to the V800" around the place. This is not a cut and paste effort though, I promise.

SUP Review: VMG Blades Mako Time Trial Fin

It feels heavier or lighter. It feels quicker or slower. They are the comments that you hear all the time not matter if you are talking about shoes, cricket bats, golf clubs or SUP boards, fins or paddles. Feel has a lot to do with our suggestions and our purchases. For those that know me they will no doubt agree that I am the furtherest away from being a technical type of person. Lift, drag, foils all confuse the bejesus out of me. For me I want to know, does it feel fast/slow, does it feel heavy/light.

My Awesome Experience With Primal Play

Last night I had an amazing opportunity to be involved in a Primal Play group meet up. What is Primal Play? Well the methodology that author of Paleo Fitness Darryl Edwards (@fitnessexplorer) uses is that it is about making activity fun, effective and engaging while getting healthier, fitter and stronger in the process. Darryl doesn't call the programs that appear in his book workouts but "playouts."
